F1 team joins forces with medics to combat coronavirus

Mar 31, 2020 10:54 IST

Formula One team, Mercedes has joined forces with medics to help combat coronavirus. The team helped develop a breathing aid that could keep coronavirus patients out of intensive care and ease some pressure on Britain’s strained health services. Mercedes worked with engineers at the University College London and clinicians at University College Hospital on improving a device called Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, which bridges the gap between an oxygen mask and the need for full ventilation. 100 such devices are now being sent for a clinical trial.
